Even when you’re staying indoors and only going out to stock up on snacks for your binge sesh, don’t forget to protect your face from the sun’s harsh rays and unwanted face mask tan lines.
Luxe Organix Aqua Daily Sunscreen, P349
While your face is covered by a mask and a face shield when you go out (even just for errands), you still need sunscreen. This lightweight, water-resistant sunscreen provides protection with SPF 50 PA+++ for UVA and UVB rays. Plus, it’s quick-absorbing and non-greasy, which makes it perfect for sensitive skin.
Belo SunExpert Transparent Mist SPF 50 PA+++, P499.75
Touch up and protect your skin with this cult-favorite sunscreen and makeup mist! It’ll help even out your skin tone and conceal imperfections while protecting your skin against the sun. Ideal for snack runs!
Clinique Smart SPF 15 Custom-Repair Moisturizer Type 1-2, P4,000
When in doubt, do your skincare routine. This moisturizer doubles as a sunscreen with its SPF of 15, which helps even when you’re indoors all day.
If you plan on lounging under the sun this summer (even if it’s just from your garden), you still *need* to protect your skin.
Nivea Sun UV Face Cream Anti-Age and Pigments 50+ SPF, P339
If you want your daily dose of sun exposure without having to worry about skin damage, make sure to stock up on sunscreen. Not only does it help provide UVA and UVB protection against sun damage, it also moisturizes and leaves your skin feeling light and silky smooth.
Vaseline Healthy White Lotion SPF 24, P345
If you’re going out during the less sunny parts of the day, use a product that has just the right amount of SPF: Vaseline’s fast-absorbing, non-greasy lotion. You also won’t have to worry about dry skin because of its moisturizing ingredients.
Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel, P898
Taking sun-kissed selfies? Make sure your skin looks fresh even under the sun. This beauty essential from Neutrogena instantly boosts the skin’s hydration and helps amplify its natural ability to self-hydrate over time.
QUICKFX Sun Block, P99
Speaking of taking snapshots, use a tinted base to say bye-bye to an uneven skin tone while getting sun protection. Plus, it’s super affordable!
If you’re planning on taking a trip, we bet safety is your number one priority, and that includes your skincare routine. ICYDK, your skin needs even more protection if you’re spending your summer at an island getaway.
Beach Hut Max 100++ SPF Ice Summer Aerosol, P649
Get maximum protection without having to worry about that sticky, oily feeling with this aerosol from Beach Hut. It’s hypoallergenic, sweatproof, and waterproof so you can stay under the sun longer.
Anessa Perfect UV Skincare Gel, P1,490
We support putting on makeup no matter where you are, but we’re also advocates of primers. Try the Anessa sunscreen—it has a friction-resistant formula that moisturizes your skin while keeping it protected when you come in contact with water or sweat. By the way, it also doubles as a makeup base!
Sunplay Skin Aqua UV Watery Essence, P465
If you want something that feels lightweight but packs a lot of SPF, go for Sunplay’s sunscreen. It’s an ultralight formula that’s easily spreadable and absorbent, and contains vitamin C that helps combat dark spots. Talk about the perfect sun-kissed glow.
Focusing on working from home? That’s okay! However, that’s no reason to skimp on summer skincare products.
Luxe Organix Rosewater Glow Mist, P229
You don’t have to endure the icky feel of summer on your face. Sometimes, all you need is a spritz of rose water. Try Luxe Organix’s mist to help soothe, nourish, and brighten your skin. Just spray any time of the day before or after makeup to keep your skin feeling and looking fresh.
PSJ x BYS Cream Cushion, P2,999
This Park Seo Joon-approved cream cushion can help protect and hydrate your skin! So if you’re making a list, make sure this one’s on top.
